  1. I love the feel of our sub. It’s a tight knit community with lots of great analysis. I love that the sub isn’t drowning in nonsense posting. Every morning I grab my coffee, and instantly jump on to read what everyone is saying. I’ve learned so much from my time here, and I’m grateful for you guys. As as far as the Midwest being boring, I totally disagree with you. Sure a lot of us are flat with cornfields, but we have some of the most dramatic weather across the country. 100’s in the summer during a boiling heatwave to negative teens during an arctic outbreak. Severe weather outbreaks in the spring, to monster blizzards in the winter.

    With the fresh 1” snowfall yesterday, temperatures plunged last night all the way down to 8 degrees. Had horrendous freezing fog this morning, but man did it setup for a beautiful morning! Trees plastered with snow, and extra frosty. Looks really cool. Storm next week looks warm. Really hope this winter doesn’t blow its load by the second week of January and poof it’s gone.

    Mayetta, KS getting raked right now. Visibility less than 1/4 mile, and winds gusting over 50mph. Nice fronto band ahead of the main event. I’m drooling you guys. Hope my big dog will come at some point this year.

    Enjoy your storm cyclone. Better put your amazing photography skills to use too. Have fun I’m super jealous. 50 and rain here with some back end flurries in the morning.

    It has been an absurdly cold November. We still have parking lot piles from the last 2 snow events that have failed to melt simply because the temperature has barely been above 32. Beautiful turkey day weather on tap, 52 and sunny. And yes go bears! Feels good to be first in our division after so many years of Aaron Rodgers and the packers dominating!

    My dad and I frequently talk about this tornado outbreak and the winter that followed. It literally seemed like Mother Nature slammed us with a historic tornado outbreak, and then immediately delivered a knockout blow with relentless cold, snow, and as you mentioned snow depth. We had a blizzard that year (Polar Vortex Blizzard) we had thunder snow from a separate event, we had wind chills readings places hadn’t seen since the 80s, snow depth that literally felt like we didn’t see bare ground from December to March. I will never ever forget the brutal winter of 2013-2014.

    You know it’s been an extremely cold November, when you’ve had snow on the ground for 5 straight days now.

    Either we are in for another historic winter, or a severely front loaded winter.

    Was just scrolling through Twitter and Judah Cohen tweeted out that CFS has been consistent in its most recent forecast for the rest of November, December, January to feature a classic El Niño +PNA ridge in west, trough in east.

    Jacksonville with a nice 6” lollipop. Lesser amounts my way, I measured 2.5”. Fun event. We actually started as sleet around 10PM last night. Roads are slicker than snot.

    The developing storm looks great on water vapor, with a nice moisture plume. Snow has started in southern Illinois, slowly creeping its way northward. Already down to 27 here, should yield some nice fluff tomorrow.

    FWIW for months CFS has been advertising a torch for December, last few runs have definitely trended much colder. Something to keep an eye on.

    Really liking the trends today. Should be a fun little event unfolding tomorrow night. Going to aim high and make a fall CMI gets 4”. Best part is I’m off work Thursday too.
